ASHRAE/AIRAH issue a joint resolution on climate change
ASHRAE and the Australian Institute of Refrigeration Air Conditions and Heating (AIRAH) issued a joint resolution on climate change.
ASHRAE and the Australian Institute of Refrigeration Air Conditions and Heating (AIRAH) issued a joint resolution on climate change. The use of renewable energy, educating the building industry, and responsible refrigerant use are key issues that ASHRAE and AIRAH addressed in their statement.
“The use of HVAC&R technologies is an essential element of contemporary life,” Bill Harrison, ASHRAE president, said. “Yet, HVAC&R systems contribute to greenhouse gas releases through energy-related effects and through the effects of refrigerant losses. ASHRAE and AIRAH are emphasizing a variety of measures to decrease emissions associated with energy use and its effect on global climate.”
“I see this joint statement as an acknowledgement of the role we affiliated organizations must play to address the complex challenges we collectively face,” John Bosci, AIRAH president, said. “AIRAH is committed to creating awareness and acceptance through further education and to the promotion of sustainable building practices and the responsible development of alternative technologies within the Australian market.”
Through this resolution, ASHRAE and AIRAH resolve to:

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
